Jerry L. Bartley Memorial Scholarship

Established in 2020 by the estate of and family and friends of Jerry “JB”, Bartley.  This award was created  to benefit and assist high school graduates who emulate the profound love, passion and commitment to the game of basketball that Jerry Bartley had throughout his life. To say that Jerry Bartley loved basketball is about as big of an understatement as you could possibly make.  JB saw basketball as a way to change lives. He was convinced – and spent his every breath convincing others –  that basketball offered an opportunity and a structure that many young people needed but did not have. It was frankly, he believed, a passport to a shot at a better life.
